A Few Bits

Yesterday, Cory Doctrow, sci-fi author and one of the editors of BoingBoing, came to speak at our school about copyright and technology. I thought the history he discussed was pretty interesting, how every new replication technology (from the player piano onwards) has been opposed by the controllers of previous technology, and how each new technology succeeded in coming into use through the protection and support of the law. The question is whether unprecedented corporate influence will prevent the same process from happening again.

In Six Books, we've started on The Prince.

Tonight, there was a "rave"-style dance party (run by the school, so some elements were (predictably) missing).

Also, I recently learned that the AHS wiki is accessible from outside Olin's network. So, if you want to see the class work for Six Books or the material for Twenty-One Grain Bread, take a look.

I have a ton to do, but yay three-day weekends.
